Between 2003 and 2005 publication of this newsletter was made possible by a grant from the Open Society Institute (OSI). In 2006, several private donors have ensured the continuation of EDRI-gram. OSI helped once again with a smaller donation. In 2007, OSI renewed its grant to EDRI for the publication of this newsletter.
